What do you think of this? A mother who declines to breastfeed her child until the age of six months could face jail unless she is unable to do so for medical reasons.
It's not law yet - but it's incredible that it's on the books at all in my opinion!
I am sure this removal of a woman's right to 'choose' will upset a lot of people.
What are your thoughts? Does bringing in such a law put the onus on the state to provide good breastfeeding support?
One would hope so! The law will also force employers to provide adequate support for breastfeeding employees.
I'd love to hear what you think about this.
